From the Beachpreneur Lifestyle Conference Sept. 2014

Leslie was a JOY to have as a speaker, fully participated as an attendee, and also helped to lead our mastermind portion of the event. She brought a lot of smarts, delivered a great message, but most importantly is a team player. We couldn’t have asked for more and we were thrilled to showcase her at our event. — Nicole Dean, Beachpreneurs.com

From Hansie Haier of the Charlottesville Senior Center August 2014

For motivation and useful information about online career possibilities, Leslie Truex is excellent. When she presents, it quickly becomes obvious she has not only enjoyed her own multi-faceted path, but also has a passion for helping others adapt and develop marketable skills for their own work-at-home successes. This is especially true for aspiring e-publishers. When Leslie recently spoke to our Writing for Pleasure group, she was enthusiastically received and provided a wealth of insights, tips, and URLs. What an inspiration!

Feedback from Participants of Teleseminars with Global Teleseminar:

Leslie is a great teacher. She knows her subject and is easy to understand. You can feel the passion she has for this particular subject. I hope you’ll sponsor more classes with her.

She stayed on topic and I got the feeling that she had lots of experience and really knew what she was talking about.

Excellent presentation

Leslie was a great speaker and so helpful and easy to understand and relate to. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.

The leader had command of her subject matter, was focused, engaging and was a pleasure to listen to. I would recommend her to others.

She was very well organized, kept her information flowing for a maximum impact in a short time frame.

Leslie provides practical insight and is very motivational!

The Class Material was very informative and helpful! Got a lot of insight warnings repeatedly on paying for a job when it is not a job but someones business opportunity.

The class flowed well and was organized and she did present a lot of material.

Very informative and helpful. Now I know what to look for. I had given up on finding an online job. Now I feel confident that I will find the right job for me, and not get scammed!
